A golf outing at the Grand Hotel, autographed memorabilia, restaurant gift cards and services from local businesses will highlight the 28th annual Radio Auction from 9 a.m. until 9 p.m. Saturday, May 14.
The radio auction is a benefit for 88.1 The Park, the student-operated station of the Plymouth-Canton Community School District. This year, the auction will be presented by Robert Bosch LLC, Diesel Division.
Auction items have been donated by local businesses with new items available every half hour along with a Dream Board with more unique items available to bidders all day.
The station generated nearly $13,000 from the auction, the major fundraiser for the radio station, and this year the students have set a goal of $15,000.
The station has been operating for 44 years, according to Station Manager Bill Keith. He added that anyone with an idea or donation for the auction can contact the station at (734) 416-7732. Businesses willing to display an auction flyer are being sought and anyone interested in sponsoring a half hour or hour of the auction can email Keith at firstname.lastname@example.org.
“We want to thank everyone who has supported us over the years. The auction has become such a big part of our fundraising. This is our biggest fundraiser and we couldn’t do it without the generous support of local businesses and our listeners, Keith said.
